I have lived in Africa, and reading this book brought to mind many of the characters who played such a role in the development of the continent, and, in some places, still do. It shows a good understanding of the foundations of the business society of Africa. The action is generally credible, and the main character, a normal man who is virtually forced by circumstances to become a scoundrel, is easy to identify with. This book left me with the desire to read more of the series.
